Enjoy Nature at Terrazas de Flores, Busay + GIVEAWAY!

Nothing makes a great success story than the kind that is built from the love of ones family which is exactly how this botanical wonderland came to be.

Terrazas de Flores is the only flower terraces in the Philippines located in Malubog, Cebu City. It’s a quick 15 minute drive from JY Square, approximately 1 km away from the La Tegola- Busay road and is home to 127 species of plants and flowers, beautiful art and fascinating poetry.

This flower terraces, which was designed by the owner himself with the help of upland farmers, is his expression of love for his 3 children. During a sit down session with Mr. Barrameda, he shared with us how many aspects of the area were created with his children in mind. His plans of creating a space for local artists to display their works is with his eldest daughter in mind as she is also a very talented portrait artist.

Here, guests can enjoy a selection of coffee, refreshments, pastries and simple yet delicious meals at a reasonable price. For a small entrance fee of P100.00, guests can enjoy the view, take beautiful photos, enjoy the scenery and relax by their cabanas.


Terrazas de Flores serves wine, cold cuts & cheese platters, coffee, cakes and other refreshments.

While their menu is still being finalized, you can already enjoy some of their dishes for a little over a hundred. I suggest the mango cheesecake!


There are tons of places to hang out and enjoy the scenery at Terrazas de Flores. Whether you prefer hanging out by a small pond, inside their glass fixtures or outside surrounded by nature; there is definitely a spot open and welcome for you to relax at. I personally enjoyed hanging by the cabanas sipping on wine and sharing warm stories with a good friend.


As mentioned earlier, Terrazas de Flores is home to 127 species of plants and flowers that can be appreciated through the terrace formation in which the area was designed after. It’s the perfect location for photo ops, date nights or even just to take a break from the city and unwind.

The Monastery feat. Jing Pascual Photography

Sharing my second set of photos from my adventure at The Monastery but this time with Jing Pascual. I previously shared Jong Ong’s set here and soon enough, I will be showing you my last and final feature about this amazing place.


11703083_10152886446826326_5607102793092200569_n Finding the right backdrop for my photos is always an integral process to my more creative photo shoots. I always find myself keeping an eye open for interesting places that allow me to relay a story or that complement personality through the clothes that I am wearing.

  At the Monastery, I was able to do just that. With their laid back, cool ambiance and spots for great photo ops; I was able to play out the story of a young lady who isn’t exactly fully grown up but didn’t want to be treated like a kid either. Obviously, me. I’m floating in between those two realms but between all this uncertainty, I’m pretty sure that I wanted to have a good time. 

Thankfully, Bree Esplanada was there to my rescue and helped me portray these characters through his awesome designs, as well.
